The Australasian Association for the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Science is holding their annual meeting next week, here in Wellington. We’re delighted to be hosting this interdisciplinary event, which brings together scholars from around the region to discuss topics ranging from Charles Darwin’s Antipodean legacy and the politics of exclusion in science, to digital wellbeing and technoscience futures.
The conference runs from November 13-15. A full programme is available here, and on the AAHPSSS website shortly, and registrations are still open. It’s possible to register for single sessions, for one day, or of course for the full conference.
In addition to all of the excellent panels, we are excited that Professor Margaret Pelling will deliver this year’s Dyason Lecture, while Ocean Mercier, Ruth Barton, and Kari Lancaster will each give a plenary.
Jo Bailey will display her interactive ‘Science Laundromat’, to creatively stimulate disciplinary conversation. To wrap up the week, Centre for Science in Society staff will present readings as part of the ‘Writers on Science’ panel, which will be followed by a screening of Peter Galison’s documentary, Containment.
